Update from Your KFA Table Officers Fall 2015


Welcome to the new semester! Your faculty association is involved in numerous issues and activities this fall, and we’d like to share with you four key highlights:

Collective Agreement Update

The 2014 – 2019 Collective Agreement was ratified by the parties in the summer, and we expect the final copy to be available online and in print by mid-semester. On a related note, you should have received retro pay on your September 18th pay statement. Your pay statement is available online at mykwantlen.ca.

MOU Controversy

As you are aware, the MOU between Trans-Mountain L.P. and KPU has been highly controversial. To date, numerous Faculties, departments, and your KFA have communicated their concerns to the KPU Board of Governors.

Employee Survey

KPU’s biennial employee survey is underway and available until October 8th. This survey gives all of us the opportunity to provide feedback to senior administration. We encourage you to complete the survey.  

Fall General Meeting and Social

Save the date: our Fall General Meeting and Social is scheduled for Tuesday, November 3rd on the Surrey Campus. Watch your email for nomination calls for various positions.  

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please call us at 2200, email us (click on our names below), or stop by our new location in Fir 226.

In solidarity,


KFA Table Officers:

Bob Davis, President

Gillian Dearle, Vice President, Negotiations

Diane Walsh, Vice President, Grievances

Suzanne Pearce, Secretary Treasurer

Panteli Tritchew, Member-at-Large
